Madeira: majestic and marvellous

Known as the garden of the Atlantic Ocean, the island of Madeira has so much to offer all its visitors. Madeira is well known for having a sublime tropical climate. What is not as well known is that the island also boasts fabulous gastronomy and even has its very own wine.  Furthermore Madeira also has a number of beaches scattered around its coastline. The island’s amazing landscapes, gardens and flowers really add to the beauty of your surroundings.  Being an island, it’s perfect for a variety of water sports such as canoeing and windsurfing.

Reward your staff in stunning surroundings

Madeira is a great destination for an incentive trip and to strengthen a work team. Why not take on a new activity to challenge your staff and get them out of their comfort zone? Perhaps explore the island with a team hike in the mountains or canyoning in the watercourse. A more relaxed adventure is dolphin and whale watching. This is an amazing experience and this fantastic shared memory is sure to help build team spirit! After all these new adventures and experiences, reward your staff with some time to relax on the beach. Together, you can enjoy some delicious local cuisine or watch some brilliant local entertainment. The more curious may wish to spend their time discovering their surroundings on their own. After an incredible incentive trip, your whole team is sure to leave feeling motivated and refreshed.

What’s more, Madeira is also an easy destination to get to. A number of scheduled and low cost airlines fly to the island’s airport from all over the UK. With a flight time of just 3 and a half hours, and a host of exciting experiences awaiting you, there is nothing stopping you from booking your next incentive break to Madeira!

Suggested Activities

Island Discovery

4×4  Mountain experience

Go with your team to discover the soul of Madeira by enjoying a private tour in a 4×4. The team will have the opportunity to explore the little harbour of Camara de Lobos and stand atop the towering cliff of Cabo Girao. Enjoy breathtaking views from its glass-floored viewing platform! The group can also discover the fascinating landscapes along the rugged north coast of Madeira. Venture through mysterious wilderness of the Laurisilva forest as you descend to the picturesque coastal villages. On the way why not make a stop off and enjoy a traditional meal, prepared by the locals who live here?

Funchal Discovery

Photo Rally in Funchal

Organising a photo rally is a really unique way to bring the team together, as well as learning more about the city you’re in. Split your team into smaller groups and let them get competitive and enjoy the photo rally! With a list of sights to find, challenges to complete and poses to strike, this is sure to be an interesting adventure – and you’ll have lots of photos as keepsakes!

After that, why not treat your staff to delicious local treats from Funchal’s market? The market sells a variety of fruits, vegetables, fish and flowers. As well as selling these delicious items, the markets are also beautifully decorated with tiles showing regional themes.

Water Sports


For half a day, venture to the other side of the island to explore further. Immerse yourself in the aquatic and natural world of Madeira in its hidden watercourse. Take a moment to enjoy the crystal clear water before you splash into it! You will also have the possibility to try an adrenaline filled canyoning session. Not only is this great fun, but your team will come together and support each other as they create these amazing memories. Furthermore, being in contact with nature provides participants with moments of harmony, and an unforgettable sense of freedom and well-being.

Dolphin and Whale Watching

Rota Dos Cetaceos

Board a boat to enjoy a dolphin and whale experience that your staff will never forget! It is a unique chance to see whales swimming in the water and dolphins jumping out from. Madeira is the perfect spot for this and to help you really make the most of this fascinating trip, a biologist team in charge of the group will provide an introduction to the various dolphins and whales before you embark on your adventure! Perhaps your staff will even swim with the dolphins, said to be one of the best experiences in the world!

Evening Entertainment

Sao Tiago Fort

In a historical and unique place, enjoy a special evening of entertainment. Located in the old Town of Funchal and overhanging the bay,  the Sao Tiago Fort is the absolute perfect place in Madeira to organise a special event. The striking yellow building will provide an unusual yet beautiful setting for a dinner you’re sure to remember.

To finish or to start your incentive trip, why not organise a special event with great food followed by a night of music? This is the perfect time to toast your staffs’ hard work and dedication!
